The Shaving Thread

post #1 of 61

So this is for all things shaving - What blade do you use? Shaving cream?

I have been looking into the single blade/brush old-school way, seen some stuff that says the multi blade ones are actually more irritating. Anyone have experience with these? Not the fold out knife looking things, but the ones from like the 50s...

I've tried using an electric, and I know your face has to adjust, but they just don't work for me...

I use Electric as well, but I have a baby face when it comes to facial hair.  I can go almost two days without shaving and still pass military standards on facial hair. 

 

When I do use a blade I just use disposable cheap blades.  It helps to have light facial hair I guess!

I use a Gillette Fusion ProGlide Power razor with Nivea pre-shave wash and Nivea shaving gel (I think it's the kind for sensitive skin).

I only have to shave my baby face twice a week though, so I save money on blades. a2_wink.gif

Anyone know if the micro touch one they're advertising on TV is any good? Rick from Pawn Stars seems to think so, but who knows. He seems like a straight shooter though of a guy. 

 

 

Scam or legit? 

 

PS- I use the exact stuff as flopster above ^^^

 

PPS- Apparently this is a legit life hack. Thanks, Cracked:

Unless they have made huge strides in single razor blades, I'm calling it worthless, unless of course you want to go back to cutting your mug up with every shave.

 

I have been using the fusion for, well since it first came out, I just use hand soap with it, works fine for me.

Well, there is a pretty sizable market for single blade razors and people who swear by them. A friend of mine, for one. Says he'll never go back to multi blade razors.

To each his own. When ever I go to buy new blades, I seldom if ever see many single blade razors, or blades on the shelves.

Well at least Army standards... a2_wink.gif

I use an electric razor, currently a Norelco, and I shave once every three to seven days. I have a separate bard trimmer for whatever the hell you'd call that crap on my chin. :)

 

I don't grow hair very quickly in case that's not obvious.

I use the five blade razor by Gillette. What I like is the neutrogena shave cream, way better than standard shave gel. Just have to really wet the area to shave or the razor gets a bit clogged up.

Of course. It seems to be more of a niche market.

I've got a Merkur HD safety razor that I've had for I don't know how long.  I use it for shaving my head as well so it gets a lot of use over the course of a week.  I like Feather blades as they're wicked sharp.  I use a badger brush and whatever shaving cream the body shop has for men (changes yearly and it lasts for ages so I don't really pay attention).

 

I also did a brief trial with a straight razor.  Gave an amazing shave but I didn't have the guts to use it on the back of my own head.  They also take quite a bit of extra up-keep which wasn't really worthwhile (at least for me).  Fun experience though!

Given my preference, I like the Gillette Fusion razor and the Gillette shaving gel (it doesn't foam at all, just a clearish gel) but I will use whatever razor and cream my wife brings home.   She looks for deals on that stuff and consequently, whatever is cheapest is generally what I get.    Doesn't seem to make much difference in the quality of the shave and I rarely get nicks anyway, so I don't complain.
